Portobello Beach Battle

The Frenchman Returns

Evening News reporting that gangs of youths in ongoing mass brawl on Portobello beach

A MASS brawl erupted on Porty beach this afternoon in front of shocked families. Tempers flared as gangs of youths headed to the seafront in blazing sunshine. Photos emerged of topless teens squaring up to each other and throwing punches. Police officers swooped shortly before 5.30pm as trouble spilled onto the High Street.

A police spokesman said: "At 5.25pm officers in Edinburgh responded to reports of a disturbance in the Portobello area. "This was in the area of the beach and the High Street. The incident remains currently ongoing and officers are in attendance." One 16-year-old boy was given a caution, while two people were left with minor injuries.

One bystander said: "Just leaving Portobello beach and no joke 12 police cars/vans have just blue lighted to the beach."

Just like Quadtophenia but more peely wally and fuelled by Buckfast whilst some Stacey Lee gets a knee trembler in the doorway of Greggs from Kayden.

Weegies have Kelvingrove Park for such events. Only right Edinburgh incorporates the nearby beaches

Seen this happening in Ayr a few years ago. Hundreds of wee scratters from Glasgow and Paisley scrapping on the beach, throwing bottles where kids were playing. Pure scum behaviour. 

 

Was on the train to Ayr on Tuesday with the wee man on the way to the cinema and was happy to see loads of police on the platforms at Troon and Ayr confiscating their alcohol.

Amazing isn't it. I can sit on a beach or round a pool all day getting slowly pissed having a lovely time but never once have I wanted to chin somebody 😂😂.

I agree 99.9%, except that time in Corfu when the Celtic family brought their accordion to the pool.

They have to have something to put in their suitcase.     It's not clothes.

I went for a stroll along the prom around 8pm last night and there were a large number of strange, youthful characters around the arcades. 

 

Not really surprising when you mix idiots, sunshine and alcohol.

Not exactly Mods v Rockers on Brighton beach, is it?

 

A few pigeon-chested milk-bottle coloured schemie laddies try to impress their oompa-loompah looking, chip-fat insulated schemie bursd by having a scrap.

They left the beach in a total state, and the locals have been down cleaning it up.

 

Scum honestly. Anywhere else in the world, the sun comes out and people hit the beach to relax, swim and just have a good day out. Here, yoofs just see it as another opportunity to get smashed and go scrapping.

 

Genuinely hate this country sometimes.

Sad state of affairs.

There would be a lot people upset seeing these scumbags being scumbags.

They won’t though. The general reaction from their parents will probably be “Oh no, not my wee Jordan...That just doesn’t sound like him at all”.

Exactly. Not sure what's sadder, squad of young lads acting tragically after a bevvy or people in their 40s and 50s generalising about every youth in the land?

 

In fact I do, it's the latter.
